Secretariat of the Convention on the
Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (UNEP/CMS)


The Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS, also known as the Bonn Convention) works for the conservation of a wide array of endangered migratory animals such as elephants, whales, dolphins, sharks and vultures worldwide. This goal can only be achieved through negotiation and implementation of Agreements and species action plans by the Member States of the Convention.

CMS engages with relevant stakeholders in addressing issues such as wildlife crime, marine debris and other aspects of wildlife conservation and management. Furthermore, CMS is closely connected to the 2030 Agenda, especially concerning SDG 14 (the conservation of the oceans) and SDG 15 ( the protection of terrestrial ecosystems and the halt of biodiversity loss). Implementing CMS is one means of achieving the SDGs, as the conservation of migratory animals contributes directly to sustainable development. Migratory animals must be conserved for the good of humankind.
